    Got a moment? We need a quick favor…

    Hey, just wanted to let you know that it’s time to vote again!

    No, we’re not talking politics, silly!

    Once a year, thousands of local residents and out-of-town visitors vote to celebrate what’s the best and brightest about Asheville’s arts and craft community.

    I wanted to ask for your help in raising more votes for Asheville as a “Top Town for Craft Lovers” >

    This contest is an annual contest held by the American Craft Week organization to give art-loving towns and cities like Asheville a chance to shine as a destination for fine American crafts and arts.

    Asheville has made the top 10 list for the past 2 years but by a pitiful showing…Last year Asheville came in 7th place – we received only 343 total votes!!

    This is where the quick favor comes in…

    Do you love Asheville’s arts and crafts?

    If so, just let the world know by voting for us in the “America’s Top 10 Towns for Craft Lovers’ contest >

    The good news is that you can vote every day until April 16, 2017.
